But God s people, and all people, have broken the law. We have loved other things more than we love God. That is sin. Jesus purpose for coming to earth was to save us from our sin. (Matt. 1:21) Why did Jesus have to die? Why couldn t He just say, You are forgiven? God is just and requires due 92 Kids Worship Guide Unit 8 Session 2

2 payment for sin. To simply forgive sin without requiring a payment would be unjust. According to God s Word, the payment of sin is death. (Rom. 6:23) But not only is God just, He is also loving. That is why Jesus was willing to die in our place. Jesus came to die to show God s love to us (Rom. 5:7-8) so that whoever believes in Him might not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16) Jesus came to die so that we would be forgiven. (Eph. 1:7) Jesus came to die to bring us to God. (1 Pet. 3:18) Additional resources for each session are available at gospelproject.com. For free training and session-bysession help, visit ministrygrid.com/ web/thegospelproject. 2 Jesus died on the cross to satisfy the wrath of God toward sin. Jesus resurrection proved that God was satisfied with Jesus sacrifice, and forgiveness and life are found in Him. (See 1 Cor. 15:17.) If Jesus had died but not been raised up, He would have been like military leaders who died without a throne. (Acts 5:33-37) But Jesus conquered death, just as He said He would. (John 2:19-21) Jesus resurrection gives us hope for our resurrection. (Rom. 6:5) And Romans 8:11 says that the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead will raise our bodies to life. Jesus crucifixion and resurrection are not the end of the story, but the center of it. Everything that was written about Jesus in the Old Testament and spoken by the prophets was coming true. As you teach kids this Bible story, emphasize the gospel: the good news of who Jesus is and what He has done. Easter 93

3 The BIBLE STORY Jesus Crucifixion and Resurrection Matthew 26:36 28:10; John 18:1 20:18 Jesus came with His disciples to Gethsemane (geth SEM uh nih). He prayed, Father! If it is possible, take this suffering away from Me. But only if it is part of Your plan. While Jesus prayed, the disciples fell asleep. Jesus said, Get up. It is almost time. Suddenly Judas arrived with a large crowd. Judas kissed Jesus so the crowd would know who Jesus was. The crowd grabbed Jesus and arrested Him. Peter tried to stop the men, but Jesus told Peter to stop. Jesus followers ran away, but Peter stayed nearby. Three times, Peter was asked if he was a follower of Jesus. No! I m not! Peter said. Jesus was led to the high priest. The religious leaders tried to find a reason to kill Jesus, but they could not. The high priest asked, Are you the Messiah, the Son of God? Jesus replied, Yes, that s right. The high priest said, Ah ha! He has spoken against God. He deserves to die! The religious leaders did not want to believe Jesus was God s Son. They led Jesus to Pilate, the governor. Are you the King of the Jews? Pilate asked. Yes, that s right, Jesus replied. What should I do with Jesus? Pilate asked the crowd. Crucify Him! they answered. Pilate did not think Jesus had done anything wrong, but he handed Jesus over. The soldiers put a scarlet robe and a crown of thorns on Jesus. Then they mocked Him, Here is the King of the Jews! They beat Jesus and led Him away to be killed. The soldiers nailed Jesus to a cross. They put 94 Kids Worship Guide Unit 8 Session 2

4 a sign above His head that said THIS IS JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS. Two criminals were crucified next to Him. Darkness covered the land. Then Jesus cried out, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Jesus shouted again and then He died. Suddenly, the curtain in the temple sanctuary split in two, from top to bottom, and there was an earthquake. One of the men guarding Jesus body said, This man really was God s Son! Jesus was buried in a tomb. A stone was sealed in front of the tomb so that no one could steal Jesus body. On the third day, Mary Magdalene (MAG duh leen) and the other Mary went to the tomb. Suddenly there was an earthquake. An angel of the Lord rolled back the stone. The angel spoke to the women, Don t be afraid! I know you are looking for Jesus, but He is not here. He has been resurrected, just like He said He would. In fact, He is going ahead of you into Galilee. The women hurried to tell the disciples the good news. Just then Jesus met them. Good morning! He said. The women worshiped Him. Don t be afraid, Jesus told them. Go tell My disciples to meet Me in Galilee. They will see Me there. Christ Connection: The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus is the center of the gospel. We deserve to die because of our sin, but Jesus died in our place. He was the blood sacrifice made once and for all for the forgiveness of sin. God was pleased with Jesus sacrifice and raised Jesus from the dead to reign as King over all creation. We are forgiven only through Jesus. (Acts 4:12) Easter 95

KEY PASSAGE: Luke 24:5-6 BIG PICTURE QUESTION: Who saves us from our sin? Only Jesus saves us from sin. countdown video leader attire phone Countdown Show the countdown video as your kids arrive, and set it to end as worship time begins. Introduce the session (2 min.) [Paige enters dressed in khaki pants, a solid-colored polo shirt, a cargo vest, and a name tag.] PAIGE Good morning, everyone! Happy Easter! Isn t today just the best day ever, Spencer? [Look around for Spencer.] Oh, my goodness. Spencer isn t here again! I know that I saw him earlier. Do you know where Spencer is? Can you help me look for him? [Look around the room, under chairs, in the closet, etc.] Maybe I should text him. [Pull out your phone and pretend to text. Wait a couple of seconds and then check your phone.] No response. Where could he have gone? [Paige exits, looking for Spencer, at the exact moment that Spencer enters from the opposite side of the stage.] SPENCER [Casually walk into the room.] Good morning, everyone! [looking around] Hey, where s Paige? She s always right on time. I wonder if something has happened to her. Maybe I should text her. [Pat your 96 Kids Worship Guide Unit 8 Session 2

6 pockets.] Oops! I forgot my phone in the other room. Be right back. [Spencer leaves as Paige re-enters.] PAIGE He s still not here! Maybe I should call him. [Paige turns her back to the side of the stage Spencer exited. Spencer enters, but Paige is so focused on her phone, she doesn t see or hear Spencer as he enters.] SPENCER Oh hey, Paige! PAIGE [Jump and gasp as if frightened.] Spencer! [Hug him.] Where have you been? I ve been so worried about you! Didn t you get my text? SPENCER I was running a little late, but when I got here you weren t here. I was going to text you, but I forgot my phone in the other room. I guess we just missed each other! PAIGE Well, I m glad you re safe. Although I should have known you were just running late as usual. SPENCER You know, this kinda reminds me of our Bible story today. Today is Easter, the day we celebrate Jesus death and resurrection. Jesus had told His disciples that He was going to die on the cross for the sins of people and He was going to rise from the dead on the third day. Well, when two of His friends went to the tomb, Jesus surprised them too! Giant Timeline (1 min.) PAIGE That He did! [Point to timeline.] You see, last week we learned that people welcomed Jesus to Jerusalem as their King as He entered on a donkey, just like the prophet Zechariah prophesied. But not even a week later that the people who welcomed Giant Timeline Easter 97

7 Jesus to Jerusalem called for Him to be crucified! SPENCER The story of Jesus crucifixion and resurrection is sad when we think of all Jesus had to suffer so that we could be forgiven of our sin. But it s also the best Bible story ever because Jesus didn t stay dead! Jesus is alive! God was so pleased with Jesus sacrifice that He raised Jesus from the dead to reign as King over all creation! Big Picture Question Poster Bibles, 1 per kid Jesus Crucifixion and Resurrection video (optional) Bible Story Picture Poster Main Point Poster Big picture question (1 min.) PAIGE Our big picture question and answer is, Who saves us from our sin? Only Jesus saves us from sin. Jesus was not just any man; Jesus is God the Son. Jesus came to earth as a human, lived a perfectly sinless life, but He died on the cross for us. Because of Jesus, we are saved from sin and death! Tell the Bible story (10 min.) Open your Bible to either Matthew 26:36 28:10 or John 18:1 20:18. Tell the Bible story in your own words, using the script provided, or watch the Bible story video Jesus Crucifixion and Resurrection. SPENCER Whoa, Paige. God s rescue plan is amazing! When sin entered the world through Adam and Eve, it meant that every human being who has ever been born, except for Jesus, is a sinner. Even when we try really, really hard to do the right things, we mess up and disobey God. That s sin. The Bible says that the punishment we face because of sin is death. PAIGE God had a plan though. Jesus is God the Son. He has always existed with God, but God sent Him to earth as a human being. Jesus was fully God and fully Man. Jesus was tempted, but He never sinned. Even though He never sinned, Jesus died on the cross to 98 Kids Worship Guide Unit 8 Session 2

8 save people from sin, and He is alive. SPENCER That s right! The angel told the women who went to the tomb that they shouldn t have been looking for the living among the dead. Jesus is alive! Because Jesus is alive, we know that we can have forgiveness of our sins when we trust in Him. PAIGE The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus is the center of the gospel. We deserve to die because of our sin, but Jesus died in our place. He was the blood sacrifice made once and for all for the forgiveness of sin. God was pleased with Jesus sacrifice and raised Jesus from the dead to reign as King over all creation. We are forgiven only through Jesus. [See Acts 4:12.] Group demonstration (5 min.) SPENCER The Bible says that everyone is a sinner, but some people think that their sin isn t that bad so they don t need to be forgiven. PAIGE The truth is that all sin is a problem because even the smallest sin separates us from holy God. God cannot ignore any sin even the smallest one a person can think of. Here, let me show you. Ask for a volunteer to come on stage with you. Before the session, place several heavy, unbreakable objects in one container and several light, unbreakable objects in another. Invite the volunteer to choose one item from each bin. PAIGE Now you can see that [volunteer s name] has chosen an object that is pretty heavy that will represent big serious sins. What are some big sins you can think of [Invite responses.] OK. Now this other item is pretty light. We ll let that represent the smaller sins that some people think aren t as important. What are some of these sins? [Invite responses.] Hold both items out right in front of you at the same height. Now, several heavy, unbreakable objects in one container several light, unbreakable objects in a second container cushion or pillow Easter 99

9 on the count of three, I want you to drop both items at the same time to see which will hit the floor first. [Place a cushion or pillow for the items to land on.] Which item do you think will land first? OK. One. Two. Three! SPENCER Whoa! I didn t see that coming! They landed at the same time. I thought that the heavier item would land first. Let s try that again! Call on additional volunteers to drop the other items in the bins as time allows. PAIGE Although one item is heavier than the other, they both fall at the same speed. That s how sin works. Our sins might look different from each other, but no matter what, our sins have the exact same result we are separated from holy God forever. That is why everyone needs the forgiveness that Jesus provided. We can t do anything about our sin. Only Jesus saves us from sin. Bibles Tip: Provide I m a Christian Now for new Christians to take home and complete with their families. The Gospel: God s Plan for Me (option) SPENCER And that is why the gospel is called that! It means good news. If the story ended with everyone being separated from God because of sin, it would be terrible news. But God is full of love, mercy, and grace and He wants to be glorified. So He provided a way for people to be forgiven and made right with Him again. PAIGE That s right Jesus died on the cross to save people from sin, and He is alive. Use your Bible and the guide provided to explain how to become a Christian. Encourage kids to ask their parents or other adults any questions they have about becoming a Christian. Anytime you share how to become a Christian in a large group environment, try to have counselors available 100 Kids Worship Guide Unit 8 Session 2

10 to meet one-on-one with kids. Make sure kids know whom they can talk to and when they can talk. Review (4 min.) SPENCER Do you guys want to review some of the things you learned today? Invite the kids to answer the following questions: 1. When Jesus stood in front of the high priest, who did He agree He was? (the Son of God, Matt. 26:62-64) 2. What did the crowd shout when Pilate asked what to do with Jesus? (crucify Him, Matt. 27:22) 3. When Jesus was buried in the tomb, what was placed in front of it and why? (A large stone with a seal was placed in front of the tomb so that no one could steal Jesus body, Matt. 27:57-66) 4. When Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to Jesus tomb, whom did they meet? (an angel, Matt. 28:1-5) 5. What did the angel say about Jesus? (Jesus had been resurrected! Matt. 28:6) Key Passage (5 min.) PAIGE Good job, everyone! That last question actually reminds me of our key passage, Luke 24:5-6. Let s say it together! Invite kids to say the key passage with you twice. Guide kids to come up with some hand motions to help them remember the key passage as you sing the key passage song. Group game (10 min.) WHO S GOT THE STONE? SPENCER I would love to play a game right now. What about you, Paige? Key Passage Poster Resurrected song palm-size stones Easter 101

11 PAIGE That sounds like fun! What did you have in mind? SPENCER Well the people who killed Jesus knew that He had told His disciples He would be resurrected. They put a seal on the stone and soldiers to guard the tomb so His disciples wouldn t take His body. PAIGE Of course, Jesus disciples didn t have to take Jesus body. Jesus rose from the dead on the Sunday after He died just as He had promised He would. SPENCER Right! Just for fun, I thought we could play a game where we hide a stone instead! Form groups of about 10 kids. Invite each group of kids to sit in a circle, facing inward with their palms up behind their backs. Choose one volunteer to sit in the middle. The kid in the middle will close his eyes, and a leader will place a small stone in one kid s palm. The leader will count to 10 and the kid who received the stone has until the leader gets to 0 to determine whether to hold the stone or pass it silently to someone else. When time is up, the kid in the middle must go around and ask each kid in the circle Do you have the stone? and each must reply Not me! The kid in the center has three guesses of who has the stone. If he guesses correctly, the kid who had the stone will take his place in the middle. If he guesses incorrectly, he must try again as you choose a new kid to hide the stone. Play as time allows. Alive Forever song and other songs of your choice Sing and offering (3-12 min.) PAIGE Let s sing and worship Jesus for dying on the cross to rescue us from sin and rising again to give us new life! SPENCER That sounds like a great idea, Paige! Sing Alive Forever. Choose other songs as time allows. Song suggestions: Alive Forever song (unit theme) 102 Kids Worship Guide Unit 8 Session 2

12 Jesus, Come Lead Us song Savior of the World song We Stand Forgiven song Our God Is Alive song Missions (6 min.) PAIGE Did you know that you can use hamburgers to tell people about Jesus? You can! Check this out. Show the missions video Ben Pilgreen: Seeing the Stories. SPENCER Ben Pilgreen moved to San Fransisco to share the gospel with people so that they could trust in Jesus, but when he moved there, he didn t know anyone. So he would simply invite people to his house for a barbecue! PAIGE Eating hamburgers and hot dogs helped Ben become friends with people and that is how Epic Church was born and how people like Austin heard about Jesus and trusted in Him for forgiveness. Now, Epic Church reaches people from more than 30 different countries right there in San Fransisco! SPENCER Let s remember to pray for Ben Pilgreen and Epic Church as they tell others that Jesus died on the cross to save people from sin, and He is alive. Ben Pilgreen: Seeing the Stories missions video Announcements (2 min.) PAIGE Well, sadly, I guess it s time to say goodbye to our friends. It was so much fun learning about Jesus death and resurrection, which we celebrate at Easter. SPENCER Yep, but before you go, I have some announcements for you. Make any announcements from your kids ministry. Prayer (2 min.) PAIGE Spencer, do you mind praying before we leave? Easter 103

13 SPENCER I d be happy to! Dear God, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and to save people from sin. Thank You that Jesus rose again on the third day and that He is alive now and forevermore! You have given us an amazing gift in Jesus and the forgiveness we can have in Him. Thank You for loving us so much! In Jesus name, amen. PAIGE Thank you so much for praying for us, Spencer! [to kids] And thank you for coming today and helping us celebrate our risen Lord! paper plates, 1 per kid scissors tape markers paper wad, 1 per kid Additional idea ROLL AWAY THE STONE CRAFT Provide a paper plate and scissors for each kid. Demonstrate to the kids how to cut the plate down the middle. On one of the plate halves, kids will cut a small semi-circle to resemble the door to the tomb. Guide kids to tape the two halves of the paper plate together, making a pocket. Kids will turn the pocket so that it stands on the cut edges, creating the tomb. Kids can decorate the tomb and write Jesus is alive! along the top. Crumple paper wads for each kid for them to place in front of the tomb opening. Kids can roll away the stone. SPENCER When the two women went to the tomb to anoint Jesus body, they discovered the large stone was already rolled away and an angel told them the good news: Jesus is alive! PAIGE Place your craft on your dresser or on a table at home where you will see it every day to remind you that Jesus is not in a tomb somewhere! Jesus died on the cross to save people from sin, and He is alive. 104 Kids Worship Guide Unit 8 Session 2

14 The Gospel: God s Plan for Me Ask kids if they have ever heard the word gospel. Clarify that the word gospel means good news. It is the message about Christ, the kingdom of God, and salvation. Use the following guide to share the gospel with kids. God rules. Explain to kids that the Bible tells us God created everything, and He is in charge of everything. Invite a volunteer to read Genesis 1:1 from the Bible. Read Revelation 4:11 or Colossians 1:16-17 aloud and explain what these verses mean. We sinned. Tell kids that since the time of Adam and Eve, everyone has chosen to disobey God. (Romans 3:23) The Bible calls this sin. Because God is holy, God cannot be around sin. Sin separates us from God and deserves God s punishment of death. (Romans 6:23) God provided. Choose a child to read John 3:16 aloud. Say that God sent His Son, Jesus, the perfect solution to our sin problem, to rescue us from the punishment we deserve. It s something we, as sinners, could never earn on our own. Jesus alone saves us. Read and explain Ephesians 2:8-9. Jesus gives. Share with kids that Jesus lived a perfect life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose again. Because Jesus gave up His life for us, we can be welcomed into God s family for eternity. This is the best gift ever! Read Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21; or 1 Peter 3:19. We respond. Tell kids that they can respond to Jesus. Read Romans 10:9-10,13. Review these aspects of our response: Believe in your heart that Jesus alone saves you through what He s already done on the cross. Repent, turning from self and sin to Jesus. Tell God and others that your faith is in Jesus. Offer to talk with any child who is interested in responding to Jesus. Easter 105

24 EGYPT Over 89 million people live in Egypt, making it the most populous country in North Africa and the Arab world. Most of Egypt s population live near the Nile River. The Sahara Desert takes up most of Egypt s territory, but few people live in the desert. In recent years, Egypt has experienced many political and cultural changes due to the Arab Spring movement. Roughly 90 percent of Egypt s population practices Islam, and 10 percent are Christians. Muslims who convert to Christianity face persecution and sometimes death. Pray for Christians in Egypt, and pray for the Beja and the Nubian people groups to trust in Jesus as Savior. NORTH AFRICA North Africa is a name given to the northern portion of Africa that includes the countries of Western Sahara, Mali, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt. Sometimes Mauritania is considered part of North Africa. Nearly 200 million people live in North Africa. While the people living in this region have many diverse dialects and cultures, they almost exclusively practice Islam. Although there are roughly 185 known people groups in this region, 142 of those groups are unreached. (They have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ.) Pray that God will call and send missionaries to North Africa to share the good news. UNITED STATES With over 320 million people, the United States of America is the third most populous country in the world. From its beginnings, the United States has been a multicultural and ethnically diverse country. People practice many religions in the United States. Roughly 70 percent of Americans say they are Christians, but roughly 36 percent of these same Christians attend church regularly. Due to the many people who come to America from other countries, United States is home to 474 distinct people groups and 81 unreached people groups. (They have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ.) Pray for missionaries and church planters in the United States to reach people with the gospel. Pray for believers in America to come to church to worship Jesus with other believers. The Promised Land Kids Worship Guide Units LifeWay OK to Print ISLAM Islam is a religion that began in the Middle East by followers of Muhammad ( AD) but has become the second-largest religion in the world with about 1.62 billion followers worldwide. Muslims believe in Allah, and they believe the Qur an was given to Muhammad in visions by the angel Gabriel. Muslims believe that Jesus was a prophet, but they do not believe Jesus is the Son of God. Muslims do not believe Jesus died on the cross and rose again to rescue people from sin. They do not believe God loves and wants to have a relationship with His people. Muslims believe they must do good deeds to please Allah to make it into heaven. Each Muslim believer must do the five pillars of Islam: confess Allah as God and Muhammed as his messenger, pray five times a day, give alms, fast during Ramadan, and travel to Mecca. Pray for missionaries as they share the gospel with Muslims worldwide, and pray for Muslims to hear the gospel and believe. Mission Cards Instructions: Print and cut apart the missions cards.
